No problem. We played most of the weekend in 100* heat and I thought the balls stood up really well.

Discussion: Observation

Pricer, nice topic but really who cares where anyone fits in if you enjoy playing the game? I like the game as it is and find anything less rather boreing and to be able to hit a HR now and then because of the equipment adds to the overall enjoyment.

Any team that can hang with Aro Glass is a very good team. Aro is a very solid AAA club with a great group of classy players.

Discussion: Two levels for each age group

There is also another aspect to the supposition of only two divisions that indicates more divisions will affect a tournament in a positive way. I believe that for many teams, it's not so much about winning a medal but rather the opportunity to play teams at or near their own level of play.

SSUSA clearly draws a significant and in my view, a more competitive group of teams than does Huntsman World Senior Games as an example. However, Huntsman will have approx 320 teams attending the 2011 Senior Games and disperse that around through numerous divisions over a two week period and most of these teams are happy and keep coming back, so numerous divisions do work, it all depends on what kind of ball you want to play.

Discussion: Changes to the HR Rule - needs more thought

Changing the HR rule to walks after the 3 limit for 50 AAA is fine when playing teams within your own divisions but will be tough for AAA teams who have to play M or M+ teams in an equalizer. We played Four Seasons in Portland a few years ago and counted 18-singles hit over the fence. I think we had one HR. Talk about boring! There is no chance we could field a team at AAA to go through that again.

Discussion: 52/275 Ball

Discussion: 52/275 Ball

Playing in a tournament this weekend in Canada, we are using a Hot Dot 52/275 ball with ASA bats. The ball is very soft and does not give you any feed back when you hit it. All you hear is a soft splat with most hits travelling the 250 - 275 range. It is a bit better in the evening when the temperature cools down. The ball also really comes off the infield with abnormal bounces that are difficult to anticipate.

In the future, if I have a choice about what kind of tournament we will play in, it will be one that offers better balls.

Kind words LOCAL:
The Marauders will be in a rebuilding stage next year as many of the BC Marauders are moving up to a new Marauder 65s team in 2012 so the 60 team will have a different look in 2012. e.g "Enviro-Vac Marauder 60s".

Discussion: Another thought on home run limits

I very seldom see the 3-HR limit exceeded at AAA 60. It does happen but not that often.

Discussion: 3 Game Bracket Scheduling

We (our teams) enjoy playing as many games as we can and enjoy meeting & playing all the great teams we encounter at most tournaments so prefer as many games as we can get but also understand the need for limiting the number of games therefore, would not have an issue with a 2-game RR and double elimination but prefer the system now used with a 5 game guarantee.
